Acedemy 1/350 Bismarck

Well I’m back and I just finished my academy 1/350 scale German battleship Bismarck. It measures at about two and a half feet (28in – 72cm) and took about 6 month to finish (on and off). Some of the pros and cons were:

Pros:
1. Great size.
2. Easy to follow instructions.
3. Great detail. (Except for the decking)
4. Excellent fun factor.
Cons:
1. Below average fit.
2. Poor decking detail.
3. (Might just be mine) vame with broken and deformed pieces.

Now the fit was bad but it was a little harder for me bevause I accidentally melted the bottom of the bridge and had to rebuild it by scratch. (Also, the guns did not come drilled out, I added those.) Overall very fun and enjoyable kit, would do it again and would recommend it to build. Hope everyone enjoys. -Noah
